So, the problem is that synthgm.sbk has meta data but not wave data.
I can't see any option in asfxload to check whether a soundfont file
has meta data only or both wave data and meta data.
It would be useful.  alsa-utils / alsa-tools also don't seem to have
anything for checking this.

It would be nicer if asfxload gave a warning when the soundfont only
has meta data and the soundcard does not have any ROM soundfont.
